Prayers & Hugs

 After two storms in a row we finally had a hurricane-free weekend!  Of course that also means that this will be the first Monday I've had to go to work this month but I guess I can cope with that.  :)  Since we had electricity all weekend I took the time to make a couple of challenge cards.  This one is for Freshly Made Sketches.  I found some remnants of this handmade paper that's been kicking around the craft room for years and decided to dust it off and make use of it.  I love the texture and movement in it.  Its so pretty and tactile!  I wanted to let the paper shine as much as possible so I kept the rest simple.  I layered a couple of MFT butterflies together,  added an Altenew sentiment and used some Nuvo crystal drops to finish it off.     

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Daffodil Delight, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper:  Handmade paper
Stamp:  (Sentiment from Heartfelt Sentiments) Altenew
Ink:  (VersaMark) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder: (Opaque Bright White Super Fine) Wow
Dies:  (Butterflies) My Favourite Things
Other:  (Nuvo English Mustard Crystal Drops) Tonic

Hurricane-free weekends and electricity are good things!! I'm so glad you could relax and craft! The hand-made paper is lovely with this sketch - so perfect behind the bright butterfly. Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.

Glad you are surviving the storms, Jen! This design is gorgeous and you were right to let the texture and color of that paper take center stage. Thanks for playing along with us at FMS this week!

No hurricane AND electricity - sounds like an excellent reason to make cards. :D The handmade paper is very cool and I do like the way your design keeps it centre stage.
